Question about Computers & Internet
You need to close all open programs and reboot before you defrag
if you want a clean reboot go to start remove all programs from the startup file so nothing is in the background, if McAfee is in your start up file, it will prevent you from a complete defrag
start/all programs/startup click and drag each file in the startup back to all programs and then do a new reboot
